Recommend a Washer for me?
We will soon be buying a new washer/dryer, as we are selling our condo and leaving the LG washer/dryer with it as part of the sale. Our new place has laundry hookup on the second floor (near bedrooms) and there is space for side by side, though we could stack if we wanted to. I can't decide what type or brand of washer to get!
Here's what I like about the LGs:
- have worked with no repairs/issues for 2 years
- clothes do not get and clean as previous old school washers, however we also have hard water here and that makes a huge impact
- necessity of keeping front door open to avoid mold with washer right at the top of the staircase - ugly and in the way
What I want in a new machine:
-price around or under $800
-do not need anything fancy like steam etc we wear mostly cotton easy care clothes and wash warm/cold rinse
- low noise/vibration
- gets clothes clean
- minimal risk of a water leak (upstairs not in a garage!)
What would you recommend? I was thinking of sticking with LG and maybe going up a model to look for an on board heater, though it is hard to figure out which washers have this feature it's not always in the descriptions/specs. I have heard mixed things on Samsung, and I will never buy another Whirlpool appliance after our horrible dishwasher.
